I've purchased ML and would like to install it on a different Mac of mine. I've made a bootable flash drive, but I was wondering about if this would work. The thing is I use a different icloud and app store account on this computer from the original (other members in my house use this computer). Just wondering if this would cause any problems? As I understand, updates are through the App store now.

Thanks!

Thanks, thought I might run into some issues doing updates through the App Store and all...

As long as your app store ID is the same one the comps it's no issue.

Well, since it's your computer (or you have control over it at least) there will be no problems for you to just change the app store login for when there are ML updates and then change back afterwards. So go for it :)

you arent even required to login to install updates, its like apple is inviting you to pirate or "share" one purchase with friends

Really? Wow, that's kind of cool actually.

I've got two separate Apple ID's, and when logging in to one, I can't see the purchases made with the other, so I assumed that updates would work the same way...

So all updates can be made without logging in?

Updates are handled the exact same way as before, it's just that the user interface for it has moved to the mac app store.
